Pages Printed sensor - auto acknowledge



Is there a way to auto-acknowledge when a pages printed sensor is down? This happens quite a lot and it causes some confusion when viewing PRTG.

I've seen the suggestion of tying the sensor to a ping sensor for the device but this won't help in this case as the printers are still pingable - they just won't give out the pages printed info at times. Eventually the sensor will start working again (usually a power cycling of the printer) but until then I have to go in and manually acknowledge the alarm.
